So at least a couple article talk about as we all expected that lawsons value is high and maybe the key to making any trade- and as most of you all expected it sounds the front office is unwilling to deal lawson
I think you trade him for a lottery pick or as the piece to get a bigger deal done to move kmart, but otherwise he can't be traded or it opens up the big hole that we had before at pg
I don't understand why you want to move KMart. He's a bit overplayed, but he's playing like an 10+mill player this season IMO..
At least wait one season and trade him as an 17mill expiring...
And Lawson is as close to untouchable as possible
I just don't think lawson should be untouchable- why? To me players that are untouchable are players who you couldn't get eqaul or better value for- imo you could get twice lawsons value in a trade possibly- could you get 2 superstars for carmelo, no- could you get a consistent star for jr, no- could you get a better big for nene, no
You have to understand that both ability and opportunity are important in these guys chances of success at the nba level- I'm a believer that there were thousands of guys that would have looked great stepping into a battle w ac- lawson is playing well and is effective at what he does, but he isn't a guy I'd want as a starter ever and if another team thinks of him as a starter I think he has to be atleast considered for a trade
I love kmarts game- but he isn't worth a 1/4th of the cap- and that's if he's healthy- with the organizations unwillingness to have a bigger payroll it makes him a luxery that a cheap team can't afford- I'm all about the trade him when he's an expirer, but even more important imo is trade him while he's healthy- you shouldn't gamble if your broke
To me untouchable is carmelo, nene, billups, and I don't think anyone gives up the value jr can have for this franchise going forward
You want to trade Lawson AND a 2nd round pick for Foye? You do realize that Lawson's a better shooter, passer, and a better rebounder despite being 5" shorter?
You forgot to talk about one of the nuggets main weaknesses- defending gaurds- foye is chauncey billups jr and is just the perfect example of why lawson has to be considered tradeable- what if you could turn lawson into a randy foye type talent? Not only is foye a better player than lawson but he's a better fit- karl will play ac in the playoffs because he will want a defensive gaurd- that would be a great trade for the nugs- look at these kids here, lawsons value is high- and I bet they still don't notice that the other teams want lawson and kmart shooting
Jr for haywood or salmons type talent trades are very retarted-
Just my 2 cents...still doesn't solve our issues upfront though. With JR struggling and Balkman never getting the chance to play, the only bad thing from that trade is Afflalo most likely seeing a reduction in mpg.
The #1 target for the nugs should be spencer hawes- 7 ft, young, and a great 3 point shooter- a perfect compliment to carmelo and nene
Just too bad nugs have little or nothing to trade- is it true that only a 2012 1st could used? The big te expired (they lied too us saying it wasn't just a financial move)
No way kings would take the s hunter te and a 1st + 2nds?
I'd much rather see picks traded for players that can help instead of just to save money- remember nugs paid a 1st to get rid of hunter, a 1st for petro, and 3 1sts for kmart- we have carmelo and nene through 2012 so that pick should be traded now along with whatever it takes for hawes- hawes and foye are the 2 perfect nugs
